Dahlia Greetings

Hello and Welcome!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Rain and thunderstorms here, but we badly need the rain and it is cloudy enough to make for a good cleaning and crafting day!

I have another birthday card to share today. This is one of my favorites as I love the vintage feel of this card! I started with a kraft cardstock base and adhered the vellum DP. The flower was made by cutting one of each size Dahlia with my Nesties and then laying them for one focal flower. The brass brad holds them together and I attached it to the card with glue dots. The sentiment is cut from gold vellum with a word window punch. I attached it to the card with mini brads. I plan to duplicate this card as I have some of the DP left. Hope you like it, too!

It's back to the craft room now to play some more!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
